I recognized that he was Data. That was all I needed.
Yeah, I think the hyper-analysis of frame by frame means we miss the forest for the trees, as it were. For me, the visuals need only be good enough to sell what the story is selling. Now, I am admittedly someone who is not big on video quality. VFX do well enough if I move through the story and go "That was a nice scene" versus "What beautiful effects."
So much better than a recast or completely digital character
Except I still think that's what they should have done as opposed to killing Data.
Data: In light of the fact that they're able to quickly construct a human like android body for you to age in, I would also like to finally fulfill my dream of being human. Build a new android body to upload me into. And I don't want to look like a pale copy of Dr. Soong anymore. I'd like to look like 21st century actor Russell Crowe.
Unfortunately our records for the 90s did not have access to an exact match.
Plot twist, Data becomes 2021 "Oh Lawd he comin'!" Russell Crowe instead of "Maximus" Russell Crowe. Hilarity ensues.
Picard/Data is so TNG movies. Dahj and Soji should’ve been Wesley’s twins with his Travelin’ powers.
I still don't get why? what is achieved by deepfaking Data with Data?
Is it, that the visibility of the passage of time makes one uncomfortable as it remindes one with one's own mortality and therefore any trace of someone aging has to be eradicated?
YOUR FIFTEEN MINUTES ARE UP!!!
I still think that guy is Lore. I don’t believe he just randomly had a biological son.
he looked like Data. Why isn't that enough?
They'll do better next time (you only need one single Mcguffin to recreate his whole positronic network) and hopefully we'll see Lal too...
Because fans know better.
It was a valiant effort.
In fact it was deliberately added to stir Brent Spiner, who had (then-recently) done an interview where he doubted that he could play Data for too much longer, due to him assuming that Data could not age.
I'm finally done with the entire vineyard dream sequence:
It's not perfect but I prefer it over the original.
Well that looks like a lot of work.
With that scene!
